IEEE Spectrum is a magazine edited by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. The IEEE's description of it is:

IEEE Spectrum Magazine, the flagship publication of the IEEE, explores the development, applications and implications of new technologies. It anticipates trends in engineering, science, and technology, and provides a forum for understanding, discussion and leadership in these areas.

IEEE Spectrum began publishing in January 1964 as a successor to Electrical Engineering. It contains peer-reviewed articles pertaining to technology and science trends affecting business and society, with a scope that covers information pertaining to electrical and electronics engineering, mechanical and civil engineering, computer science, biology, physics and mathematics. Additional content is gleaned from several hundred annual international conferences.

As a general magazine, the articles attempt to be accessible to non-specialists, though an engineering background is assumed. Twelve issues are published annually, and IEEE Spectrum has a circulation of over 380,000 engineers worldwide, making it one of the leading science and engineering magazines.

Article submission to IEEE Spectrum is open access. Individuals and corporations have the right to post their IEEE-copyrighted materials on their own servers without express permission.

In 2010, IEEE Spectrum was the recipient of Utne Reader magazine's Utne Independent Press Award for Science/Technology Coverage.[1]
